‘Sensational’ is an exploration of the multidisciplinary and multi-sensory talents of the diverse members that make up the Fumbally Exchange.
Our senses tell us about the world around us, and our pop-up event aims to investigate our senses through art, performance and discussions about design and science.
Join us to experience themes and talks celebrating the various senses and experiences of some of the Dublin’s most experienced and creative innovators.
It will be sensational evening!
